I followed the recipe to the letter, and mine turned out a little runny. It tasted really good, though. Will make again with some adjustments - want to add chopped pecans to the topping and thicken the filling a bit more. Overall a really good crisp.

This was wonderful, but got to admit I made some changes (I don't know why, but I've got to put my own spin on things). I added the zest of the lemon to the syrup. Used almond instead of vanilla extract. Used 3 c berries and 2 chopped apples. Decreased flour to 3/4 c and increased oats to 1 c. I think I would decrease sugar slightly next time. Everything came out perfectly: bubbly thick fruit and a nice, crunchy topping. Served with a dollop of whipped cream. This is definitely going into my arsenal of dessert recipes. Can't wait until our nectarines ripen to try this.

This crisp is delicious!! I decided to halve this since I was only feeding 4 and I wish I had made th whole thing! I did use 3 cups of blueberries which made it nice and juicy. The crisp part was perfect--not too wet, not too dry, you have a real winner here! I only had reconstituted lemon juice, and it was just fine in this recipe.

Superb! I made it for my sister's baby shower several days ahead of time and froze it; even after thawing it was still delicious and I had several people request the recipe. Thanks for a great, easy summer treat!

Used other suggestions and had almond extract instead of vanilla. Not enough frozen blueberries so add frozen strawberries-----results were Yummo! Will make again :) and again:)

I made the recipe "as is" and loved it. Used fresh blueberries and thought it went together easily and was wonderful with vanilla ice cream. Thanks Kittencal - we love your recipes!

Another winner from Kittencal! I used frozen blueberries so allowed them to thaw and drain thoroughly. Also, I rounded my tablespoons of corn starch so as to counteract any juiciness from using frozen fruit. A 9 x 9 pan worked just fine. Turned out great and so easy to make!

This is an excellent crisp! Very flavorful and not soggy at all. Love the oats. My husband declared this his favorite crisp and that's saying something!

This was a very nice crisp but if you're halving it, make sure and make the full amount of topping. I didn't and it definitely could have used more.

This was soooo good! I used fresh bing cherries as that it what I had on hand and needed to use them before they went bad. I used 6 cups of cherries and I doubled the ingredients for the crisp (we like lots of crisp) and baked in a 9x9 square pan. Came out beautifully! Hubby is making "nom-nom" noises! Thanks for posting! :)
